Objectifying Motif describes methods and techniques to combine the power of object-oriented programming in C++ with the graphical user interface (GUI) development under Motif. The book is a complete guide for both beginning and advanced O-O programmers on how to combine these two distinct paradigms to achieve the greatest benefit. Specifically, the reader will learn, step by step, to design and develop a portable GUI library based on X/Motif. Called MWL, the source code for this library is provided in an appendix to the book. MWL is a fully functional library derived from the author's years of experience and can be used as is.
